Daley Bows Out: Rahm's Turn?
Chicago Mayor Richard Daley announced today he won't seek re-election.
Rahm Emanuel, Compromiser-in-Chief, has said he's interested in the job. He doesn't see eye-to-eye with Obama's inner circle of advisers and it's long been rumored he only planned to stay with Obama through the mid-term elections anyway.
Run, Rahm, Run. Obama needs a new Chief of Staff -- one who's more concerned with a bill's details than capitulating on principles to get it passed. From the New York Times March, 2010 profile on Rahm:
Emanuel is far less concerned about the details of a bill than the ability to get it passed.
Please, Chicago, take him off our hands.
